Coutinho is currently being touted as a possible makeweight in PSG’s negotiations with Barcelona over the sale of Neymar.

And the report suggests the 27-year-old would prefer to move to the French champions for more than one reason.

Bayern want to sign Coutinho on a two-year loan deal similar to the one that took James Rodriguez to the club from Real Madrid .

However should Coutinho move to the Bundesliga side, it is unlikely Bayern would be able to match his current salary.

That would pose no such problem for PSG, particularly if they also get Neymar off the club’s books as part of the transfer.

In addition, Coutinho is said to be more sold on the idea of a switch to Paris as he would link up with more of his international teammates.

Brazilians Thiago Silva and Marquinhos are both currently plying their trade at the Parc des Princes.

Discussions have already begun between PSG and Barca, with the Ligue 1 club open to taking on Coutinho.

It is reported that PSG are demanding a deal worth £230 million for Neymar, which would include £110m in cash, as well as Coutinho and Barca teammate Nelson Semedo.

The clubs held talks on Tuesday, but Coutinho’s agents, Kia Joorabchian and Giuliano Bertolucci, were not said to be present for the preliminary negotiations.

Coutinho has found himself surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp just 18 months after his £142 million switch from Liverpool .

Should he fail to seal a move to PSG, Bayern’s loan offer could be his only option of first-team football, with his chances at Barca becoming increasingly limited.
